    Archimede Outdoor AntiMag review-type thread w/ daily updates

    The AntiMag arrived in sunny Hampshire this morning. Rather than a long review (other members have written some great ones alread), I thought I'd start a thread that I can add to as my week with the watch goes by.

    So, first impressions:

    The dial is busier than the other German watches I own but still very readable.
    Very soft leather strap - really good quality. Needs no breaking in. There aren't enough holes on the strap for my puny wrist but rather than ruin the lovely Archimede strap by punching another hole, I'll dig out an old strap from my 'drawer of doom'.

    More to follow tomorrow.

    Would you recommend the 39mm version instead to your past self (and other people with slim wrists)? Yes, it's not antimag, but...

    Yes, but my wrists are c6 inches so well below average. I think most people will be fine with the 41 - I can just about get away with the 41 but no doubt the 39mm would fit a little better. Maybe Archimede will be kind enough to do a pass round on one of those?!

    A couple of observations about the dial:

    The rehaut adds a nice depth to the dial but is at a very steep angle so not easy to see.
    The date window is pretty unobtrusive, perhaps because its proportions are similar to the lumed markers.



    On my way to vote this morning:

    I've put the watch on a grey Meyhofer strap, which works pretty well I think.

    I may have missed it posted elsewhere, but is there AR coating on crystal? if so, just underside? Thank you.

    I think none, or just on underside. One for Archimede to answer...

    Thank you. I just sent Archimede an email asking this question.
